Those who make a switch from Windows to Mac struggle with one thing for sure – Right Click in Mac. Windows users are so used to the concept of right clicking the trackpad or mouse that the absence of right click in Mac is one which surprises them the most.Mac uses a two fingered click function for right click. It is much faster and intuitive once you get a hang of it, but do you need to suffer till you get a hang of it ?
Well, no – not at all. Mac has right click functionality available. Apple has kept it hidden in Macs, Macbook Pro and Macbook Air.
How to enable a right click in Mac OS X
Though I recommend you get used to the double finger click in Mac instead of enabling right click, you can follow the below steps to enable a literal right click in Mac OS X :
- Open System Preferences
- Click on Trackpad
- Under the ‘One Finger’ section, select the check box next to “Secondary Click” and select “Bottom Right Corner”
- You can either change the two finger behavior or keep both two fingers and bottom right corner enabled.
